And this moldy tile. Frowny face.
Unfortunately, once they took all of the wall tile off, the years and years of moisture creeping through the wall tiles were showing a lot of damage.
Anne and Brian's friend came over to help with the demo of the plaster. Why is it that anytime there's demo to be done, it turns into one big party when guys are involved? I suppose demo satisfies some natural instinct in males to tear things apart.
Skip ahead to my parents arrival. They helped to get the new backer board installed and included a shampoo bottle niche with a marble ledge. You're probably thinking "that shampoo bottle niche is a little large, isn't it?" Well, you don't know my sister. Showering at her house is like visiting a spa...so many creams and lotions and potions and exfoliating face washes and multiple shampoos and conditioners. Quite the inventory as compared to the three products in Brent and I's shower - shampoo, conditioner, soap.
Here's Brian, carefully tiling away.
At some point, Anne and I painted their existing vanity a charcoal color to contrast against all of the white.
Sometimes it's fun to see a side by side of the before and after, so here ya go! They estimated that this entire remodel cost them about $600 - subway tile, floor tile, paint and miscellaneous tiling supplies. Not. Too. Shabby.
